All seem so scary

Posted , 4 users are following.

When they start to talk about putting anything near my spine it scares me. Before i had my 3 ruptured disc repaired i got that epidural steroid injection and it put every muscle in my body into a frozen state. It hurt so bad i cried for hours and i couldn't move. Every nerve in my body was screaming. So because of that no one can convince me to inject anything in or near my spine ever again.

    I don't blame you for not wanting a Spinal cord stimulator.

    CRPS tends to spread to any area that becomes injured or operated on.

    Any new injury becomes a site for CRPS. Fibromyalgia is the same way.

    I had a follow up today. It went really well. It IS really scary. I’ll be honest. I’ve been petrified. I had to and have to, keep reminding myself that if I panic I will not be helping myself. The only resin I would consider a procedure like this is to help with my quality of life. It’s a thought I  visit every day. Sometimes more than once. The things I’ve been told, granted in my opinion could be more, have been true. I have had terrible pain and a life changed in a flash. If there is a route to take, I’ll take it. Be your own advocate. Research Research Research! Don’t read negative reviews because happy people are not sitting around writing about pain, they’re out living.  Look at your options and decide what you need, how to proceed and seek positive feedback. I’m alive but alone. I get down more often because of my bring cut off from so much. I’m going to try to change it. I don’t know if I will succeed and today I see a better outlook than I might tomorrow. I’m around if you need an ear. Be safe, be as well as you can be. Be your own voice.
